Why THE Alfa is for you
THE Alfa is an all-mountain hero that can do everything and is for everyone. It’s built to perform great on all levels, whatever your style or terrain. With THE Alfa, you can explore the entire mountain without compromising. Making turns when going slow feels effortless, and it keeps stable at high speeds, including riding icy slopes. THE Alfa is for all levels (of fun).
Let’s get technical
Triax Fiberglass has 3 layers, this makes the board more energetic and delivers maximum power transfer to the edges.1 of 7
Titanal is a technical material that stores energy. A metal alloy that provides smoothness, great dampening, and stability to our boards.2 of 7
The center of a board with a mix of different (performance) zones made from FSC bamboo, beech and paulownia.4 of 7
Pow Savers are extra inserts to set your bindings back and to transform your board into a powder board.5 of 7
Biax Fiberglass is providing longitudinal stiffness with torsional forgiveness, for a stable and smooth feeling and easy turning.6 of 7
The finished product is a superstrong, lightweight, and porous base. The porousness holds wax better and longer. Carbon and graphite additives make this base super-fast gliding too.7 of 7
THE Tech highlights
Edge Lift Technology
Edge Lift Technology
Our boards are 3D pressed with a subtle lift (max. 1.5mm) of the base and edges at the corners. This raises the contact-points just off the snow. With THE Edge Lift Technology, you’re less likely to catch edges when riding. This makes it easier to make turns with more natural turn initiation and exit, you’ll have a smoother ride, more fun to learn new tricks, and it provides extra floatation in the powder.
Multi-Grip technology means extra contact points on the heel- and toe sides for extra grip in icy conditions. Think of it as snow-chains on your car tires. But Multi-grip technology is extremely subtle at just under 1mm bumps on the edges underneath your binding areas. It’s almost invisible to the naked eye and unnoticeable in softer snow, but it results in smooth rides with extra grip in harder snow.
Looking sideways: Cam Rock.
The Alfa has camber under the bindings and flat in between for stability and pop, without being too aggressive. The Alfa also has rocker in the nose and tail for easy turn initiation and exit. This wavy curved shape gives THE Alfa its versatility. It doesn’t focus on any specific terrain, but excels everywhere.

Rieks Schippers –
The Alfa 157 is a super easy board to ride. It’s lose and playful but on the edge it’s a beast. At high speed you have so much control and gives a ton of confidence back.

Alfa 153, 176cm, 76kg.
Nothing for beginners. A beast in groomers, super stable in high speeds. And a perfect all around board.
De Alfa 157cm deze winter aangeschaft na een Tip van een vriend over dit merk.
Na een week Snowboarden is er maar één conclusie mogelijk!!
Echt een Fantastisch Snowboard die heel veel kan. Ook op hele hoge snelheid geen trilling geeft niks en snijd ook zo scherp de bocht en in niet Normaal!!
Heb veel Boards gereden in me leven deze komt echt op nummer 1 steekt met kop en schouders boven de rest uit!!!
Such a good allround board, especially in this price range. Wanted an easy forgiving board to add to my quiver. And while it is definitely a forgiving easy to rode board, it holds it’s own when you wanna hard charge it, that was pleasant surprise.
Great board that does what you expect, and more.
